Our guide will accompany you in the comfort of your own vehicle starting at the historic Range Rider Lodge in Silvergate, just half mile from Yellowstone’s North East Entrance, Wednesday through Sunday at 8:00am, returning at around 10:00am. The tour will include breakfast at our Hemingway exhibit catered by the Miners Saloon and a tour of two of America’s most beautiful roads; The Beartooth Highway and The Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. You will immediately realize why this spectacular region just outside Yellowstone’s N.E. Entrance was so special to Hemingway from his first visit in 1930 to his final days.
We will relive all of the iconic writer’s hunting and fishing exploits in the area, examine the connections to seven novels and numerous short stories and cover major events in the Hemingway biography that involve the Yellowstone High Country. Not only will we see the rivers and streams, mountains and valleys, but also many buildings and businesses in the Cooke City/Silver Gate area that are part of the Hemingway story. Your guide for the tour has lived in the area for 20 years and will be able to verify and cite all information given. Join us for the educational tour of a lifetime and discover the connection between the most influential writer of the 20th century and America’s greatest national treasure.
